The Big Bang Theory: "The Terminator Decoupling"

On a train to San Francisco for a conference, the guys spot Summer Glau playing herself, star of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. While Sheldon frets about a flash drive he forgot to pack, Howard and Raj take turns hitting on Summer.

While this was an episode of TV, it made me feel sorry for Summer and other celebrities who get this treatment more often than they'd like. I also wondered what I'd do in the guys' place. I'm a loyal Browncoat, but I don't feel the need to actually meet anyone from Firefly. If I had the chance, I'd say, "I really enjoyed the show and the movie and everything you've done since. Good luck." I'd shake hands, and then I'd walk away. No autograph or photo necessary.

The last time I had jitters meeting someone I admire, it turned out better than I could possibly imagine.

SJ Rozan is as cool as she is talented and that is saying a lot.

That said Summer would likely have me drooling and incapable of speech.

I watched this and I must say they could have given her something to do--the same mistake they made with Penny last year and the same mistake they make with Sara Gilbert. I love the show but they don't understand women and Penny only got good lines when they started writing her as a man. I'm goiing to blog on this now that it's got me going. Thanks.
